I’ve always wondered what my dad was on about when he used the phrase above, but now I understand.
For my birthday I was given two very cool cameras from the 60s. A Kodak Instamatic 100 and another Kodak Instamatic 204. I thought they were worthy of a post at least. You cannot buy the film anymore but I’m planning to buy some expired film to try them out. After a bit of research I discovered that one of them uses an additional ‘flash cube’ (literally a cube that sits on top and swivels with a flash that can only be used once). I can’t imagine that now.
The third picture shows the basic aperture settings for when it’s sunny or cloudy. Also worth showing you is the old packaging for my Canon A-1 bellow thing. Lush!
